S Bluesom Prema Jugu / Goin’ Down South

Boris Hrepić Hrepa is a cinematographer, author, editor and director of the movie Goin’ Down South. He is also the co-founder of the Croatian band Daleka obala, being the only band member to have played at every one of their concerts. It is less known that he started his career as a cinematographer while still in the band, and took part in making the music videos for the songs 80-e, Slatko and Ruzinavi brod.

The 33rd International Blues Challenge was held in Memphis at the beginning of February 2017 and Croatia was the only European country which had a representative in the Youth category. This documentary speaks about the history of the music of the American South and takes the viewer on a journey through Atlanta, Macon and Memphis all the way to Clarksdale in Mississippi and its mythical Crossroads.

S bluesom prema jugu / Goin’ down south

Snimatelj, autor, montažer i redatelj filma S bluesom prema jugu / Goin’ Down South je Boris Hrepić Hrepa, suosnivač i jedini član Daleke obale koji je svirao na svim koncertima benda tijekom njihove bogate karijere. Manje je znano kako se Hrepa snimateljskim radom počeo baviti još u doba Daleke obale sudjelujući u režiranju nekoliko videouradaka benda (80-e, Slatko, Ruzinavi brod). Početkom veljače 2017. godine održan je 33. International Blues Challenge u Memphisu, a Hrvatska je kao jedina europska država imala predstavnika u kategoriji Youth.

O tome i povijesti glazbe američkoga Juga govori ovaj glazbeno – putopisni dokumentarac koji gledatelje vodi na dalek put preko Atlante, Macona, Memphisa, pa još južnije u Mississippi do Clarksdalea i mitskoga Crossroadsa.

Božidar Milinović – Mr. Jazz

By carefully observing his inspirational sources, Božidar Milinović – Mr. Jazz studies the characteristics and reveals the physiognomy of renowned blues musicians. His portraits are based on a clear interplay of light and shadows, harmoniously balanced and devoid of any decorative frills. At the 10th Kastav Blues Festival, he will present his 34th solo exhibition, which is simply called The Blues.

The exhibition is dedicated to Sandra Zlendić, a tragically deceased artist from Rijeka. The opening of the exhibition will include a performance by Mario Šekelja, a young blues guitar player from Pleternica.

Blues Workshop

The Blues Workshop which traditionally takes place in the Town Loggia during the Kastav Blues Festival is a great opportunity for local musicians to exchange their experiences and make contacts with international colleagues. The workshop is open to participants of all ages and levels of expertise, who will have the chance to talk to lecturers about professional issues or just chat with them informally.

The lecturers are prominent international musicians with many years of experience in the educational field as well as being renowned artists.

Glazbena Radionica / Blues Workshop

Glazbena radionica koja se, već tradicionalno, održava pod Gradskom ložom u sklopu Kastav Blues Festivala dobra je prilika za domaće glazbenike kako bi razmijenili iskustva i kontakte sa svojim inozemnim kolegama.

Namijenjena je polaznicima svih uzrasta i stupnjeva znanja, otvorenoga je tipa, a sudionicima je omogućeno da komuniciraju s predavačima pokrivajući stručnu tematiku ili naprosto neformalno razgovaraju. Predavači su eminentni svjetski glazbenici s dugogodišnjim iskustvom na edukacijskom polju, a istovremeno su i priznati koncertni majstori.

Michael Roach

Michael Roach, the ‘Godfather’ of the Kastav Blues Festival, plays music in the so-called East Coast style of blues that dates back to the 1920s. After spending several years learning directly from such eminent figures as John Jackson, John Cephas and Jerry Ricks, Roach developed a personal style which, because of his natural spontaneity and humour, leads to great interaction with the audience during his concerts. As part of promoting African-American culture over the past 30 years he has conducted numerous workshops throughout the USA and Europe and has lectured at the Exeter University (2000/2004), The University of Northampton (2005/2016), The University of Worcester (2015) and Hartpury College (2017).

Michael Roach is one of the founders of the European Blues Association and the British BBC radio station invited him to take part in the broadcast ‘Deep Blue’, a series on blues music in 2003.

Michael Roach

Michael Roach, „kum“ Kastav Blues Festivala, izvodi glazbu u stilu tzv. East Coast Bluesa koji datira iz dvadesetih godina prošloga stoljeća. Nakon što je godinama učio od eminentnih imena ovoga žanra, kao što su John Jackson, John Cephas i Jerry Ricks, razvio je osobni stil koji u kombinaciji s Roachovom prirodnom spontanošću i duhovitošću uspješno ostvaruje interakciju s publikom na svim nastupima.

Kao promotor afroameričke kulture u proteklih 30 godina organizirao je brojne radionice u SAD-u i Europi, te održavao seminare i predavanja na sveučilištima poput Exeter University (2000/2004), The University of Northampton (2005/2016), The University of Worcester (2015) i Hartpury College (2017). Jedan je od osnivača udruženja European Blues Association, a engleski radio BBC 2003. godine angažirao ga je na realizaciji serije radijskih emisija posvećenih blues – glazbi Deep Blue.
